Love Story: Did He Just Say That? :)

So happy to have these photos of us in New York.

Dear readers – this ‘Love Story’ is really just getting going.¬† I mean, it’s been what, 4 weeks since we met by email?¬† And now this…



Oh my goodness, you are the very definition of¬†lovely!¬† Thank you for all your emails!¬† People keep telling me they can tell how well I’m doing and how¬†happy I am.¬† I certainly am so happy.

Mara, everything is working out wonderfully,¬†better than either of us ever even hoped we could hope!¬† Be confident in¬†the fact that I love you, in a purer sense than I have ever previously¬†felt/known, as I am confident that you love me.¬† I have every desire and intention¬†to make you my wife (yep, you just read that!)¬† Nothing could make me¬†happier.¬† I said in my email last night that I couldn’t possibly be¬†happier unless I imagined myself a few months down the road, but then I¬†realized that’s exactly why I couldn’t be happier, because I see what’s a¬†few months down the road, and it’s you and me.¬† I’ve happily resigned¬†to the idea/fact that THIS IS HAPPENING!¬† It’s as if I’m enjoying RIGHT¬†NOW the happiness that I know is inevitably coming, or that I get to¬†borrow some portion of the Godly ability of having all things before me,¬†past, present, and future, and so I get to feel right now a portion of¬†what WILL BE because it already IS.¬† Does that even make sense?¬† I kind¬†of feel like you and I are so happy now because deep down we already¬†know this is the most amazing thing to happen to us yet, and it’s only¬†going to get better.

So…Mara, my love, just give in…let go of the¬†worry, embrace what this is NOW, and be confident that the NOW is just a¬†hint of what is in store for you and me – together!

Is¬†that bold??? You bet it is!¬† But it is a boldness built not¬†on naivete¬†or physical affection or misleading emotions, but a boldness built on a¬†sure foundation of total and complete mutual respect and love for the¬†things in life that REALLY MATTER, and a genuine and pure love for each¬†other.¬† That’s exactly what this is, Mara, and we just better get used to¬†it – cause there isn’t one ounce of me that says this isn’t sticking¬†around.¬† I am way too in love!

If for some reason you¬†have difficulties focusing the rest of the day after this email….well¬†I’m just returning the favor for what you do to me. ūüôā¬† You are the¬†best thing…!



P.S.¬† Will someone make a movie of this?¬† I am telling you, it was that magical.¬† Better than “You’ve Got Mail.” ¬† ūüôā ¬†

    sigh…. This is like a contemporary Jane Austen novel, but with a happy ending since the beggining… Mr. Darcy was nothing compared to Danny ! ūüôā
    And Mara is the loveliest heroine!!! Sigh…. Oh my, oh my….

    Now, seriously though.. this needs to happen, a movie I mean.
    This is too dang cute not to be shared in a movie format ūüôā

    Your love story continues to be so inspiring, uplifting and comforting, it spreads out so much love and hope!

    Have a blissful day!

    Mara – Simply Thank you!
    Having just found this blog just over a week ago I've been reading the posts each day (and going through the back dated posts) and I have to say it's my favourite ever blog!
    Living in Australia (moving to NYC next year) I'm not only inspired by the ultimate love story of you & Danny (hoping America has one more 'Danny' to send my way..) but the way you write about the city, life lessons, being grateful for the hard times and all the cool little links you have too.
    I am inspired.. in so many ways!

    Bold? Yes. But bold is good sometimes.
    Thanks for sharing.
    Oh, Just Living the Dream
